Gender in Argentina’s New Legal Landscape
We regret that this event has been cancelled due to public health concerns with COVID-19. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
The transatlantic influence of the May 2012 Gender Identity Law in Argentina law was immediate: in December 2012, the European Parliament recommended following the Argentine model in its report on the situation of fundamental rights in the European Union. In 2014, Andalucía became the first European region to adopt the Argentine law. In this talk, Moira Fradinger charts the Argentine cultural and political processes that led to this legal innovation, a few of the parliamentary debates that led to its approval, and some of the ensuing debates that have developed in dialogue with unprecedented feminist mass-mobilizations in the country.
